Yes, you do. In order to be able to see all that Kauai has to offer, it is recommended to rent a car. The bus system on the island is not geared toward visitors, and has limits to what you may have with you. There is only one highway on the island, and the roads are surprisingly easy to navigate.
The condo is located in a quieter, more private area of the resort, with little foot traffic. It is a short walk to the smaller round pool and barbeque area, and just a 3-4 minute walk to the main lagoon style pool. The beach (Pu'u Poa) shared by Hanalei Bay Resort and the St. Regis Resort is approximately a 10 minute walk. There are bellmen at the resort with golf carts who can take you anywhere on the property (including to and from the beach) at no charge.
The Bali Hai Restaurant was damaged due to a fire that occurred in July 2011, and is closed for renovations. It is anticipated to open in 2017. The Happy Talk Lounge is now open, and serves lunch and dinner with music until 9pm

A reservation deposit of 20% or $300 (whichever is greater) is required at the time of booking. The reservation deposit is non-refundable, and is applied to the total cost of the reservation. The remaining balance is due 30 days before arrival. Cancellations made within 30 days of the reservation will forfeit all rental and taxes paid, with the exception of the cleaning fee, which is refundable in this instance ONLY. Otherwise, the cleaning fee is not refundable. Purchasing trip insurance is generally inexpensive and highly recommended. Travel Guard is a great resource to look into, or you can research others.
This applies to every reservation. A late check-out may be available for an additional fee. Please inquire for more information.
For reservations more than 30 days in advance, a reservation deposit of 20% or $300 (whichever is greater) is required. The remaining balance is due 30 days before arrival. For reservations 30 days or less in advance, the full balance is required. There is no security deposit.
Payments for all reservations are payable to myself, the owner. We accept Visa and Mastercard, but do not accept checks.
Your keys are available from the front desk. All that you need to do when you arrive at the resort is go to the front desk, and give them your name and room number. They'll have your keys waiting for you! Remember to return all keys to the front desk at check-out time, as the resort does charge a fee for lost keys.
Fresh linens and the following starter supplies are provided free of charge. Additional supplies can be purchased at the sundry shop or the Foodland grocery store in the Princeville Shopping Center.
